Amid Criticism of Campaign Ad, Bush Will Visit a 9/11 Memorial
Facing intense criticism for using images of the destroyed World Trade Center in his campaign commercials, President Bush will attend the groundbreaking for a Sept. 11 memorial in Long Island next week, the White House announced Friday.
Mr. Bush is to attend the ceremony for the memorial in Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, N.Y., on Thursday. Less than three hours later, he is to attend a political fund-raiser at the Carltun restaurant, in the same park, where he is expected to raise as much as $1 million for his re-election campaign.

Repeating: This Is Just Shameless Unmitigated GALL
Taking a moment for a photo-op at a 9/11 memorial site when the real reason for being in the 'hood is to raise a million bucks for your campaign. This takes major MAJOR balls.
